Timeless is a new film by poetic research unit Shanzhai Lyric, filmmaker Solveig Qu Suess, and artist Yi Xin Tong. It explores “shanzhai” (the Chinese term for counterfeit), which also means “mountain hamlet," in reference to an enclave on the outskirts of empire where bandits abscond with stolen goods to redistribute them among those living on the edges. Appearing in conjunction with the exhibition Meander, the film screens for the first time in the U.S. in the mountain hamlet of Williamstown. Considering places from the scholar-recluses of China's Mount Lu to the bootleg markets of New York’s Canal Street, the filmmakers join Meander exhibition curator Robert Wiesenberger in conversation following the screening.
